I use Macrumors for so long time and I JUST realized there is a question mark as a one side of apple! For god sake, I just thought it was weird drawn apple!

Please, tell me if anyone had the same!

No, it's always been there and is fairly obvious. Glad you are excited about though! :p

Personally I always thought it looked like the apple had a pimple on its chin.

I never noticed it until someone pointed it out to me.

I noticed it by myself (I think) and felt very stupid soon afterward.

Now you know how I feel all the time.:p

I hadn't noticed the question mark until someone pointed it out about a year ago.

And I'm a highly trained, professional observer!!:rolleyes: :p ;)

I didn't notice the question mark in the logo until a couple months after I became a member.

Don't tell me I the only one who noticed the question mark in the logo when they first visited?

I didn't notice it until a couple of months in, and now I can't not see it!
I think it's a bit like the FedEx logo - once you know what you're looking for, it's impossible not to see it.

This thread gave me the exact same feeling :P

Noticed it immediately (not to brag) and stuck around on this site because it's so well designed, figured if that much effort was put into such a small little thing, this must be a good site :)

I've long admired the Sun Microsystems logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sun_Microsystems_logo.svg) where each UN pair make another S:

It was a shame when the power utility Southern California Edison (http://www.sce.com/) abandoned their wonderful logo (http://www.logosdatabase.com/logo/sce_73641269) that made their initials look like a power cord:

I never realized that. I guess I just thought it was a weirdly shaped apple. Good eye you have there.

For a few months after I found this site, I actually thought it was some sort of really weirdly stylized anthro thing. The dot was the nose and the pips were the eyes. Whenever I look at it now, my sight wavers weirdly between seeing the MacCreature and the apple with the question mark. It makes my brain hurt so I try to avoid it now. XD

I noticed it the first time I saw it many years ago. But then again I am a visual person.

By contrast I think some logos are a lot more difficult to figure out like the FedEx logo. Not many people know about the arrow. When it was pointed out to me, I felt pretty stupid for not noticing it.

Yes. I am in the same position - I had never noticed it until just now, when I read your post and then the entire thread.

BTW, I don't understand why some twit (cloaked by the anonymity of the internet) saw fit to downvote your post, so I took the liberty of altering that. Besides, your post a is perfectly reasonable observation to make.

I never noticed it until someone pointed it out to me.

Same here; which, in my case, is just now. You learn (or try to) learn something new each day.
